I am so sorry for neglecting my farm page! The last three weeks have been crazy for me preparing for school to kick off! This was my first week of kids, I have to say they are so amazing! I was so happy to see their smiling faces as they came through the doors of my school. My teachers (who are the best group teachers I have ever worked with) welcomed them with open arms and have set off building relationships and establishing routines. I am so proud of my little school!
We have been anxiously watching Irma at the farm. Although she is going to devastate millions of people, we feel thankful that we will be safe from Irma’s rage. A storm like Irma could literally put us out for the season and all of Matt’s hard work getting Fall crops up and running would be washed away. I feel for the people who will be suffering Irma’s wrath. Mother Nature has not been our friend lately as we look at Irma with Harvey still on our minds.
Last Saturday’s market was rainy and cold! Matt and I were out in it all morning and afternoon! When we got home, we were soaked! I decided to make my favorite soup! I found this recipe in the magazine Real Simple and is so good! I serve it with great crusty bread from Norwood Cottage Bakery at market.
